Ode to a Web

I have a confession to make: 
I absolutely abhor spiders. 

I think they are some of the 



and most repulsive creatures to crawl the planet.

And yet,

I am always drawn to admire their webs.

The intricate design, 

the sparkling symmetry, 

and the fluid strength 

in each web amazes me. 

Then, the Sun hits the dew covered strands just so, 

and I'm completely captivated.

So, even though I may have an aversion to eight-legged things, 

I give a toast to a spider's web ... 

a beautiful creation, 

however disliked or misunderstood its creator may be.
